pitted a national law against a 2004 arizona voter registration bill. the case explores the extent of state powers against the controversial backdrop of voting restrictions. arizona's proposition 200 requires state residents to provide either a driver's license, passport, birth certificate or physical proof of citizenship before they can vote. but an existing federal law requires only a sworn statement of citizenship on a voter registration form. supporters say the arizona measure cuts down on voter fraud by keeping noncitizens from voting. but opponents argue the law unfairly tarring hes minorities, immigrants, and the elderly. the case is only the most recent dispute between arizona and the federal government related to immigration issues. over the summer, the supreme court upheld part of a top state law that allowed police to check for immigration papers. other states, including alabama, georgia, kansas and tennessee, have similar laws on the books and a number of other states are also considering comparable measures. the obama administration supports the challenge to the arizon

the affordable care act but keeps the law's budget savings and uses it to balance their budget. they say in the budget they are going to repeal the affordable care act. how are they going to repeal it? it's passed the congress and it's the law of this country. it was upheld by the supreme court. we had an election, where this was a central point of debate. and guess what, president obama won the election and he ran on the affordable care act. so they say they are going to repeal it, they don't have the votes to repeal it. and even if they did, he would veto it. no way they could repeal it. it's a hoax. it's a hoax. and then they claim to protect medicare while ending medicare as we know it for future seniors and our children and our grandchildren. and the biggest hoax, i want you to comment on this, and sit there and say they are going to repeal the affordable care act and take the savings from the affordable care act, the $718 billion that was put there from the providers and use that to balance their budget. the numbers do not add up. ms. frankel: let me ask you this. does the repeal o

the health care law and increase the cost of care to our seniors, throw students off of their parents' plans, cost tens of millions more americans to be uninsured and put the insurance companies back in charge of patients' care. our budget rejects that approach, and it builds on the health care law to continue reducing costs responsibleably increasing efficiencies and improving care. our budget also maintains the key principle that every other bipartisan group has maintained but that has been rejected by the house republicans. we don't think the burden of deficit reduction should be unfairly borne by the most vulnerable children and families who have already sacrificed so much. everyone in america needs to be a part of this solution, but the house republican approach would shred the safety net that has offered a hand up to millions of families across america, including my own when we needed it, and, mr. president, we reject that approach. the budget we are considering this week also makes the investments we need to keep our military strong, to protect our communities and environment and upho

't understand the law. at worst it is misleading the american people. as we all know now, the sequester is not a cut. this is federal spending. without the sequester continuing to go up. this is federal spending with the sequester continuing to go up. the difference between this and this is 2%. instead of being able to hire 100 additional t.s.a. agents, the government can only hire 98. these 3,000 new jobs, some of them could be to replace people that left. but some also are new jobs. why? because the president has the power to move money around. he can't take money from justice and send it to defense. but he can take money from the army and send it to the navy. he can send money from the g.s.a., the government services administration, which owns all these buildings in washington, and move it to some support staff. he can find ways to get the people to do the work that he needs, not withstanding his protest that he couldn't. >>brian: judge, in the sequestration legislation, it allows that flexibility? >> not in the sequestration legislation, brian. it's because we don't have a budget. e
the monumental changes to our economy over the past 10 years since the law was last authorized. there are many important reasons to do so, including cutting waste and improving he efishency, but the most important reason to me is the moral one. quite simply the existing maze of federal work force training programs is failing those who it is intended to be serving by trying to be all things to all people, the federal work force training program is serving no one well. that's a problem. the federal government's food print has gotten far too large and our national debt has grown with it. as a result of this failing to serve the work force of today and piling up ever larger bills for the children of tomorrow. people that don't even exist yet. what the skills act does is consolidate and eliminate many unnecessary and duplicative programs not simply for the sake of downsizing but improve the quality of work force training. that's what we should all be about. republican and democrat alike. business owners understand this. they understand the importance of streamlining and efishency. they understand t

discretionary spending. then what is agreed to infil law that came at the end of that dreadful process of holding the debt ceiling hostage. so unilaterally declared that to the floor for cuts and not a ceiling and now it is a way of avoiding the sequestration of the defense budget to the remarkable set of additional cutbacks and means tested programs of one sort or another. i even solve the most analytic reporters that david rogers of politico showed in the course of writing about that. and of course we had yesterday a successful republican filibuster on the senate democratic plan extending the law were student loan rate in financing it in a particular way. i know in "the new york times" this is the 21st successful republican filibuster in this congress. most of it is not if you will consequential and the filibuster was in the first two years because there was a republican house and democratic wishes from the white house and the senate are not likely to be realized but the fact is that it has been so commonplace and it's taken for granted in most press reports the word filibuster never
